Bring Back the Court Jesters

Content originally published at iBankCoin.com

The problem with American politics is that the people demand to be entertained, as they feverishly engorge themselves with Nando, cheesed doodles, along with any number of strong narcotics and booze. More or less, much of America is populated by varmints, both new and old, perverted, slobbish people who festoon their living quarters with degeneracy and live out villainous lives. Here's Trump weighing in on NFL kneelers and how owners should deal with them.

Here is the full outburst. The President has now entered the red zone in politics, messing with her favorite pastime -- fool's ball. Will this latest gambit pay off? Or, will an assault on the CIA's favorite deflection be his downfall? My personal opinion, not that it should mean more than anyone else's, is that the President shouldn't get up on stages, stumping for people with the last name 'Strange' -- calling for multi-millionaire fools-ball players to be fired for kneeling during the anthem. Instead, he should've dispatched an Anthony Scaramucci type figure onto the public, cursing, using terms like 'fughetiboutit', to discuss this very important matter. This jester could've said all of the things Trump said, AND MORE, without sapping the office of the Presidency from whatever semblance of dignity it had left in it. For the sake of the nation, and for our cherished institutions, being back the court jester. We've already brought back other fine institutions, like family monarch and the aristocracy, feudal lords, and clandestine forms of slavery -- why not this?

i differ with the fly.  i think this is just the kind of thing to help his supporters marginally, recertify his buffoon credentials (somewhat secretly ersatz in my opinion) and distract from what i hope he is really doing: deciding who in the investigative, prosecutorial and clandestine services he can actually trust, and promoting them, while determining those not trustworthy and sidelining them in the subtlest way possible.

The Lo-Fo idiots that live and breathe sports won't be affected by anything Trump says.  Those that are smart enough to have other interests will spend their valuable time and money elsewhere.

It's all one giant dog and pony show to keep us distracted while they rob us blind of what little we have remaining of our liberties and money.

Agreed...Donalds Hutzpah is a strength and weakness he needs to better manage...unfortunately its hinged to his mouth. Just get back to work Mr President...throttle CONgress for Repeal/Replace, MC/Small Biz Tax Reform, The damn wall, and hell, why not take a whack at convicting HRC and her swamp associates. BTW, get out of Alabamas politics if you dont have enough sense to figure out where your "Base" is. For Christ sakes WTFU!

We have a court jester; his name is Trump.  Others are in charge.  Delusional NeoCons under the pay /sway of Military Industrial Complex Death-Merchants run U.S. Foreign Policy.  Predatory Bankster-Fraudsters run Domestic Policy.  Corporate Lobyists spaying dollars to run the Congress.  They all laugh at Trump.

Pud, Trump winning wasn't "accidental". Please start getting alternative views instead of only MSM pig manure. It's precisely because of his knowledge of the media that he identified the hot-button issues that got him elected. His tweeting, likewise, is a heavy contributor, while idiots scream that it's not Presidential, mostly because it bypasses their channel control, and it works.

The three most blatantly overpaid yet useless members of society are:God-damned musicians,God-damned actors, andGod-damned professional athletes.All are asses magnified by the camera. In a just world, all would be burger-flippers at best.

The worst part is that so many of the citizenry viritably WORSHIP those you've listed.  Tens of millions of grown men literally salavate over their "afweetz".  Millions of teenage girls drool over some fratboy musician or actor with the maturity level no better than theirs.  Societal collapse can't come soon enough.

The black athletes that choose to be openly disrespectful to American tradition and the US flag are only hurting themselves.

If NFL team owners can't control their employees (players), they don't win games or championships, and they lose fans and money. BIG money.

Diversion from the "Pentagon in bed with organized crime" story, or just trying to spikeattendance at NFL games?Fuck black athletes. Fuck Trump. Fuck the NFL. Personally, I feel no need to pay homage to The Empire'sFilthy Rag.

WWIII", and watch the "STAR SPRANGLED BANNER" play on the huge LED SCREENS , and watch all the LOSER FOOTBALL players, who will not stand for the national anthem  , BOOED and FANS leave the FOOTBALL game.BINGO ! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, LOSS OF REVENUE- MOBILIZE WE THE PEOPLE TO JOIN THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. MSM Main Stream Media @CNN @CNBC @ABC @CBS YOU SUCKERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I expect the president to defend our flag and country. We had 8 years of disrespect from obama for our flag, our military, our economy, our laws, and much more.

So, it makes sense to these "brave" protesters taking a knee to anger the folks, and fans, who have the money to buy the tickets because they're the ones still working. Wow. Ok. Whatever. Not good at Math. Do professional athletes get unemployment when everyone who's still working loses enough interest in the "game" to quit paying through the nose for the tickets? Do the advertisers sell more or less product when the people who might actually buy said product quit watching the "games"? Do the networks keep paying billions for the right to broadcast said "games" no one with any money is watching? I guess we're gonna find out. I haven't missed football or basketball or even baseball. They're no longer a part of my life, day to day. Meaning, I won't spend my money to watch overpaid, overhyped, employees bring their politics into the "game." I get enough of that kind of bullshit from the so-called Hollywood celebrities who, even now, can't figure out why their movies suck and no one pays to watch them anymore.Divisions, divisions, courtesy of the liars of mainstream media. I'll keep my money in my pocket, thank you very much. I worked too hard to waste it on a bunch of anti-American assholes who can't see down the road.

Boy Fly did you put a multi-million dollar gold leaf frame around this "pile of _" subject!

1260 comment(s) (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-23/trump-blasts-warriors-star-ste…) and counting for something as unbelievably brain dead as this topic... As the World quite literally is coming apart at the seams thanks to the chief looters in Washington scrambling ILLEGALLY for oil in Eastern Syria in a war they created on it just like Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan (speaking of moar looting)https://www.rt.com/news/404331-us-trump-minerals-afghanistan/, not to mention begging for conflict with the PRC and Russia because they need to secure the biggest ransom/"loan" just to pay their bills.

Tick... Tock... American bitches!

Your time is UP!!!

Actually, Son, Trump is correct for doing this. He understands things like media, public perception, mass hysteria, etc. and wants to generate a backlash, providing a focal point for resistance. Effete intellectuals sneer, of course, but far more actual people are influenced by athletes than by professors and pundits. The Black-as-Victim narrative, so important to Democrats, must be stopped.

I'd buy everything you are saying if his government wasn't presiding over the worst trade deficit and accumulated debt with NO EQUIVALENT in recorded banking history!

When "The" Donald gets our military out of the rest of World's orifice(s) for the purposes of theft and tells the UN that we can't afford military operation(s) across the GLOBE ANYMORE because nobody will EVER forgive America's debt(s), not only because they have "no equal" in their accumulation, but also because they have ruined the reputation, integrity and TRUST of every ally that we "have left" or "once had" -then by all means necessary let's have a spirited debate about the pomp and circumstance protocol of kneeling vs. not kneeling at our ritual "bread & circus" events!

Hope that lesson helped.

Coming from a military background ( which I assume you don't, but may be wrong on that) I understand a United front beats a divided one and when you respect the symbol of your Country whether or not you respect the leader or not means the difference in defeat or success. There is absolutly nothing wrong with Patriotism and those who have influence like athletes, movie stars ect. ( as superficial as they are) makes a difference and they know it and so does our President like him or not. He is there for minimum of four years, our flag has been there a lot longer but people are actively trying to destroy our Country from within the system to bring in a different flag,which has no soverignty or loyality to the UNITED STATES. There are problems here and corruption because of the disloyality to our flag and for which it stands. Disrespecting the flag does nothing but divide us and once that is done the take over is a piece of cake. So yes, Trump is correct on this one. Disrespect the flag, disrespect our process of the constituton ( they have a right to protest the anthem because of the flag, but it says more about them then our flag) and you wind up disrespecting it's people in general as a UNITED people.

Actually I do come from a military family that learned mightily from the war in Vietnam and what "Patriotism" ought to be in light of that awful lesson... But certainly not the hollow blind to the "gutter" ones you speak of!

But following your fucked up logic. If you want to check out in a "blaze of glory" at everyone else's expense (including your own) I guess you are FREE to follow it to it's conclusion?!!!

The only ones willing to take the risks in stopping it remain to be seen!

"and for our cherished institutions"

Give me a break.  Name one, oneUS institution that takes responsibility for what it does and how it spends its budget.  There isn't one.  And please don't start in with the LGBT-Forces or the Neocons leading them.
